This week in Dermatology News: 

  1. Skin patterns of COVID-19 vary widely

  2. First validated classification criteria for discord lupus erythematosus unveiled

  3. Phase 3 COVID-19 vaccine trials launching in July

Dr. Vincent DeLeo counts down the top downloaded peer-to-peer interviews of Dermatology Weekly in 2020. So far this year, Dr. DeLeo and his colleagues have covered a diverse group of topics impacting the way dermatologists practice medicine, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic—from the continued use of biologics in psoriasis patients to adopting teledermatology to recommending hair products for African American women.

Teledermatology, Episode 63: Dr. Candrice Heath talked to Dr. George Han about how dermatologists can adapt their clinical practice to conduct quality teledermatology visits with their patients. They discussed potential use cases for teledermatology during the current health crisis and beyond as well as how to address technological barriers to care.

Hair care products for African American women, Episode 60: Hair salon closures during the coronavirus pandemic have left women of African descent to care for their own hair at home. Dr. Lynn McKinley-Grant and Dr. Susan Taylor talked about hair care products these patients can use so that dermatologists can help African American women take care of their hair and manage dermatologic conditions.

Biologics during the COVID-19 pandemic, Episode 57: Patients with severe psoriasis may be at higher risk for infection because of increased inflammation in the body. Dr. Lawrence Green discussed how to counsel patients who are taking biologics to control their psoriasis during the COVID-19 pandemic.
